Alexander shows up in some other census but it states he was born in Girvan which I think is the nearest registration place to Colmonell

James as Grand-son a Grocers Apprentice

Hi I am the grandaughter of Gilbert Milroy McCreadie's sister Agnes who married Edward Alexander Hyslop. I realise that two years have passed since you posted your request and in that time I hope you will have found out what you want. However if you are interested I have quite a lot of info on the McCreadies and the Milroys
My father stayed at Bardolphs on several occasions and was very friendly with your Uncle Andrew whom I myself have met on many occasions when he used to visit Barrhill
